I am currently starting my thesis paper which I would like to focus on option strategies. I am not an expert in the subject by any chance, more of a newbie who is very keen on learning in order to eventually participate in the complex world of derivatives. Despite my lack of knowledge in options, I have opted for this topic in order to research, study, learn and eventually write about the intrincacies of option dynamics - and the subsequent development of strategies in order to profit in varying market conditions. Can anybody recommend good reading material (books, other theses, websites, etc.) where I can start educating myself on the subject at hand? Thank you for your help in advance.
